*****5 Stars " ...a powerful message about how to behave "The Angry Dragon by Michael Gordon is a children's picture book. George has an unusual pet - a dragon called Joe. Joe is an angry dragon who throws temper tantrums when things go wrong. One day, while playing with their toys, George broke one of Joe's favorite toys. Joe loses his temper and George tries to help him understand that he shouldn't get angry. Throughout the day, George continues helping Joe to overcome his anger and see that patience is good, greed is bad. Joe soon comes to understand that and peace reigns in the household. 

The Angry Dragon by Michael Gordon is a great book for kids. The first thing that struck me was the color; it stands out with lots of bright and cheerful colors in the excellent illustrations that go along with the story. The second was the fact that it is written in rhyme and in nice-sized, easy to read print benefiting both children and the adults reading with them. The story is a simple one but carries a powerful message about how to behave and how not to behave. It teaches that anger doesn't solve anything and that there is always another way to deal with situations, especially where the temper arises as a result of not getting what they want. I thought this was well written and to the point, although I thought that George perhaps acted a bit more grown-up than his age suggested. Overall, a good story, great for younger children to start learning right from wrong.

*****5 Stars " Talk With Your Dragon"
If you thought a title like The Angry Dragon by Michael Gordon might be a book for the younger reader, you got it. You are right. What a good way to start the day. This is one of my author request reviews. I received the Kindle download via an email attachment and received no form of compensation for this review. This is an extremely short work and measures only thirty-one Kindle locations, twenty-two content pages, but they are colorful and busy pages.

The first thing the young reader will see is a page with some blank lines preceded by the words "This Book Belongs To." I think this is a good idea that encourages the idea of ownership. Then we can move on to the idea of sharing what we own.

My Kindle download presents two facing pages at a time. The left-hand page has the story set out in two-line phrases. The first two lines rhyme with the second two; the third two lines rhyme with the fourth two. The right-hand page is an illustration drawn in a "comic" style with vivid, eye-catching contrasting colors and content that encourages vocabulary learning.

This story has three distinct and short messages. 1) Being angry with one another when an accident happens is a waste of time; it is better to talk it out. 2) Not all time is play time. Sometimes we need to help our parents and our friends should understand this and not be angry at having to wait. 3) Overeating favorite foods can make for an uncomfortable sleep experience. The three short messages support the central theme of the story; it is sometimes good to change behavior. Short messages for the younger set and a more comprehensive theme for the older developing youngster provide a nice mix of content and provide a satisfying story ending.

The rhyming element of the story makes this pleasant for a parent as a read-aloud book. I will recommend this to my children and grandchildren as part of a pleasant activity to do with their children. I do not spend a lot of time with this genre but I can see the educational and parent-child bonding value to such works. I gave it five Amazon stars.

From the Author

Are you trying to help an angry & anxious child? All of us get angry sometimes--and our children are no different. If you're looking to share a few laughs and talk about emotions while reading with your little ones, here's a sweet kids book that really can help.

My book,
The Angry Dragon, helps young children who are just beginning to recognize and identify their emotions understand how anger feels and affects them. 

Anger is a natural emotion, but can be difficult to manage. Use this little book to start a discussion about aggression, anger & tantrums.. The book teaches young kids that
being angry doesn't make them bad.
